On Time Birthday Tag

Bday Ray3

True Story: Last year I gave my cousin-in-law a birthday card & gift six months late…LOL. So this year, I did one better. He got it on his actual birthday and a special wrapped gift to boot!

Ray's Birthday

How awesome is it that the card itself also becomes part of the birthday gift!? Awesome blossom! No, I didn’t give him blossoms. I wrapped a See’s Candy box filled with their tasty peanut brittle. I even helped him eat it. HA!

I have been promoted to Manager!

I couldn’t have made it this far without the support of my wonderful customers and  Circle of Pals.

I can’t tell you now because all the right people need be informed, but next week you are going to receive the greatest news that made my whole year!!!

The saying, “When One Door Closes Another Opens” is more than just true!
174 Days Left until RETIREMENT, but who’s counting!?

MAGGIE MADE THOUGHTS: Simple Suggestions I Use

  • When giving a small gift use the card to decorate the box. It automatically becomes a 3-D card.
  • A masculine card can have ribbon! Don’t ever let anyone tell you it can’t. Ray loved the ribbon!

Card Challenge

There are a few Stampin’ Up! demonstrator colleagues outside of my Pals group that I follow because I admire their talent.  This led me to the Creative Challenge Club and I decided to enter the challenge because I love the colors they chose for the challenge.

You too can participate in the Creative Challenge 006 and challenge yourself to create and then inspire others by posting it.  Lets have fun together.

As part of the bonus challenge I added Melon Mambo to give it a bright colorful look.
